Okie Italian Pasta Salad


Okie Italian Pasta Salad

We’re also loving the Okie Italian Pasta Salad. It’s full of flavor from Bar-S bacon, mini pepperonis, Lovera’s cheese, Scissortail Farms fresh-picked basil, cucumber and tomatoes. Della Terra’s fusilli pasta is the perfect base for this salad. The pasta, which is artisan and made locally in small batches, is as authentic as you can get. And the whole salad is tossed with Diane’s Legendary Italian Salad Dressing, which lives up to its name. This pasta is great made a day ahead. Add extra Diane’s dressing according to your taste.
